The only recruitment criteria will be proximity to the school there will be no academic selection.
Its perhaps worth clarifying that the Herne Hill Forum was asked to get together a small number of representatives from key community projects to meet Mr Andreson, the new chief executive for Lambeth. We were very restricted in numbers to be invited as it was intended to be a 30 min introduction as you can see from the article below we did well to pack as many in as we did.
All the projects represented rely on public sector funding for their existence or project development and this was the basis of selection, so that if ever their name comes across Mr Anderson's desk he can put a face to it.

The 37 southbound only (direction Peckham) diversion caused by roadworks at the junction of Half Moon Lane and Village Way was due to end on Monday 6th March. Throughout today, 7th March, buses continued to operate off-route over this sector, with passengers boarding/alighting outside Herne Hill Sorting Office and then travelling non-stop via Red Post Hill to North Dulwich station.
We shall advise via the blogspot as soon as this diversion ceases .
42 bus -- no final decision yet
The long-running saga of the 42 bus is some way from being resolved. Favoured option is the Spurling Road (Goose Green) terminus point, following the news that Sainsbury's cannot accommodate the turn-round.
Meanwhile the service continues to add passengers, is remarkably reliable and at weekends has double decker operation on some services.

The next Public Forum takes place on the above date from 7 to 9 pm.Topics already confirmed are the eagerly-awaited update on the Herne Hill Junction and a chance to hear about the Southwark Community Wardens.
The Forums are a great opportunity for local residents to speak, address the meeting on any "soap-box" items you have been storing up, and hear updates on a whole range of local issues.
We'll be delivering the Agenda through your door but please note the date now and watch this space!
The Community Council, which covers Village, East Dulwich and College Wards, meets tonight at 7pm at Christ Church, 263 Barry Road.
Following some considerable customer research Transport for London intends to introduce a new modular bus shelter -- called Voyager -- which is designed to give better protection from the elements and will be constructed in different shapes and sizes to fit the varying sites. It will also be far more disability-friendly.
Of course you always read these things first on the HH Forum blogspot!
